Two children under 10 years old and a woman were killed today, while a third child was wounded in a shooting at a house in northeast Denver.

That child is in critical condition at Denver Health Medical Center.

The shooting appeared to have been isolated and there was no indication that a shooter is at large, Major Crimes Cmdr. Ron Saunier told the media.

The neighborhood is in an industrial area, surrounded by warehouses and a trucking terminal, near the National Western Stock Show complex.

Neighbor Debbie Martinez said the house was recently remodeled, and she saw a family of five - two adults and three children - move in six months ago.

"They seem like outgoing people. They didn't bother anybody," she said.

About a block from the scene, members of Providence Bible Church gathered in a circle to prayer. "Basically, we pray for the community," said Pastor Jose Rojas.

"This is the horror of the whole country. There are all these shootings," he said. "I think it's too much, too much to see innocent people being killed."

The deaths came as the Colorado Legislature considers stricter gun control and President Barack Obama tries to rally national support for a ban on assault weapons.
